1 When troubled my soul and when peace I would find,
How sweet is the love of Jesus!
When lonely I feel, and when friends are unkind,
How sweet is His love to me!

Chorus:
O how sweet, O how sweet is His love,
How sweet is His love to me!
When friends all have gone, and I suffer alone,
How sweet is His love to me!

2 When fainting and helpless I fall in despair,
How sweet is the love of Jesus!
When suff'ring with pain, and when sorrow I bear,
How sweet is His love to me! [Chorus]

3 When dark is the night and when sorely distressed,
How sweet is the love of Jesus!
When longing my soul for His comfort and rest,
How sweet is His love to me! [Chorus]
